the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t

. they had the names of tamerlan. they investigated tamerlan and he was part of a big bomb plot. did the fbi fail? i would say they probably -- something sliped through the cracks for them. it wasn't their most shining moment. however, think about bush-cheney and think about obama administration. fbi under bush-cheney, would they have been -- would they have interrogated him? would they have brought him in and spent more time with tamerlan years ago in 2009 when they had his name on the list? when his name popped up on the list would they have gone after them, or was there pc stuff at work where the obama administration says, look, we are not going to go after him right now. he has been cleared. let's not take a look now and let's not follow him. my concern is the treatment of terror under obama is different than the treatment of terror under bush-cheney. obama doesn't want to call it terror. he wants to call it -- i don't know. >> the fort hood one was classified as workplace violence. i don't know if they would claim a do over on that one. greg, you talked about the fbi on saturday when we
